Ese’ese draws up wish-list for 2019

Herman Ese'ese has a wish list drawn up.

He's set himself a number of goals to achieve this season and they start with pre-season training and flow all the way through to representative football.

The first goal seems simple enough.

"Just trying to get fit," Ese'ese said.

"Obviously it's going to get faster next year. With all the new recruits as well, I'm just trying to adapt to their playing style as well. Getting used to how they play but mainly getting fit."

Ese'ese arrived at the Knights last year in search of a regular opportunity to play first grade.

The 24-year-old made 23 appearances last season, making his Test debut for New Zealand in the process.

This season, competition for spots in the team is at a premium following the arrival of James Gavet, Tim Glasby and David Klemmer.

"The Club's done a terrific job recruiting players like Klem," he said.

"I feel like that's a huge addition for us. I'm happy that they're here.

"... Klem and Glasby have played grand finals and State of Origin, having those guys in the squad and James Gavet is a boost for us."

Consistency is another goal.

"I'm still learning every day," he said.

Having made his debut for the Kiwis in the Denver Test in 2018, wearing the black and white jersey this year is on his bucket list yet again.

"It was a dream come true last year," he said.

"It's definitely something I want to try and make this year as well."
